Great local food with friendly service and great prices. Got a sauteed fish entree with garlic in lemon that came with 2 sides of grilled vegetables and rice and beans. Softest, tastiest rice I've had thus far in the trip. Unlike other places in Belize,...More

We came here as a group of 6 and had great attentive service directly from the owner. Of course it helped that it was the offseason (October) and aside from one other couple, were the only ones there! We all had the seafood platter (fish,...More

I had the seafood platter with grilled spiny lobster and fish and also with fried octopus and shrimp. It came with a salad and rice and beans. The lobster was so sweet and delicious, and the fish was lovely as well.

Stopped in for lunch with the family. My wife's fish tacos we're pretty disappointing and the rest of our meals were alright but nothing that really made us want to come back.

A funky little place in the heart of downtown San Pedro. Serves great local food with a smile and very reasonable prices. Has a sand floor and is a little dark & run down, but great people & good food!
